The Crested Ibis - or 'Yíbìsī' (宜必思) in Chinese - is a bird that was once on brink of extinction. They used to have a widespread range in Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, and Russia but now their numbers are scarce due to increasing habitat loss and persecution amongst other things. The last wild Crested Ibis in Japan died in 2003, but thankfully a captive breeding programme is taking place in Japan and China to help rebuild the population. With their beautiful red face and legs, pinky white feathers and fun 'crest' from which they get their name, they really are beautiful birds.

The anatomical heart painted above Ibis communicates my trademark message of 'Love Wildlife'. I promote this as a hashtag (#LoveWildlife) in all my Twitter and Instagram posts. You can find me on both apps at @Jane_Mutiny.

These birds are listed as Endangered by the IUCN, meaning their numbers are in decline.

This is an original artwork, painted in acrylic with highlights of gold paint, on a plywood panel measuring 32 x 21cm with a simple pine frame. It is signed and dated on the front and features the animal name, locality and conservation status on the back. The work comes ready to hang, with d-rings fastened to the back, and the front is finished in a UV protective matte varnish.

Thanks for looking!
